Last year Price played at the level of an NHL starting goalie. But a fairly mediocre one, who was prone to concentration lapses and letting in a deflating goal at an inopportune moment, despite otherwise playing pretty well.

This year Price is playing at the level of an NHL starting goalie. But one who looks a lot more focused and is stealing games consistently for his team.

It's not all down to team support. This season is a small sample, and Price has played this well in 5-and-longer-game stretches before too. We know he can do it, we've seen it before. The turning point for him will be when he keeps it up over the course of a season. I think he will.
